    Dynamically Swap Data from Data Source / Spreadsheet

    Jeff Thurm


      Hi All,

       

      I'm new to Tableau and was hoping someone could help me with the following...

       

      I have a map visualization already made that is based on a variable in a CSV file (or it can be made that its a regular Excel file, as well... xls etc...). Is there a way to make it that my visualization is linked to my data source so that if I make a change in Excel (to the column containing my variable), the change will automatically be reflected in the visualization in Tableau?

       

      If so, can you please walk me through the steps how to do that?

       

      Thanks...
